Down the street from me in East Palo Alto is a little community center. I noticed that something was going on there, so I wandered over and barged in. The people running the event were really cool, and even directed me to the kitchen to get a plate of food.
The event had local dancers meeting a man who had been in the dance business for decades. First the locals showed what they could do.
This is the old pro. He toured with Run- DMC, Salt ‘n’ Pepa, The Phat Boyz, and a number of other major hip-hop acts. He watched the locals, told them they were good, and gave a talk about the business of being a professional dancer. Knowledge was passed, and a splendid time was had by all.
